Forum Post: How to Unite the OWS and Tea Party

If you want to unite the two parties, we need to make everyone realize that the Federal Reserve is our true enemy. All of the corruption, the bailouts, the wars, are started by the Federal Reserve, because they are the ones who get rich when we pump in money for social programs, and they are the ones who get rich if we go to war. If we want to take back our country, we must destroy the Federal Reserve.

Smart, keep yourself pure and ineffective. Real smart.

You wouldn't want OWS to be known from its worst representatives, would you?

I don't know what you're talking about.

Partner up? With a bag of drugged out violent assholes like the oWS?

Maybe together, they can solve that Obama birth mystery that the Tea Party has not been able to sort out on its own.

it's odd that the US treasury is separate from the government

The US treasury is not separate from the government. The Fed is. They are two different entities.

The reason it was formed this way was to try to separate it from political objectives. If a president had a say in Fed policy, it might dictate a loose money policy just before his election to help his chances of election. However that decision may be inflationary over a longer term. So, the idea is really to prevent political interference from causing unsound monetary policy.

currently money policy is not in the hands of the people

Why would we want to unite the Tea Party and the OWS? The tea party supports policies that blatantly support wealth disparity.

Why was the Federal Reserve created? What was life like for the average person before the Federal Reserve was created?

The last few years it seems that there has been a big following to the idea of a Federal Reserve Conspiracy theory. Someone gave me a DVD about this subject and it was full of statements that were just plain wrong. When you say "they are the ones getting rich" ..If you mean the Federal Reserve, it doesn't work that way. It operates like a corporation, but what comes in as profits are returned to the Treasury.

The Federal Reserve System was created for several reasons. With the private banking system, there were severe crashes every so many years that often became depressions. The private banking system was very oppressive for the average person - and was a key factor in the populist movement of the 1890's.

How do you know? They've never allowed a full audit. Recently we've finally had partial audits and the audits exposed trillions of dollars of misbehavior.

The Fed = criminal, unconstitutional liars.

By the way, you left out how they caused the 1930's depression (the big banksters were forewarned and moved their assets into gold).

There is nothing wrong with doing an audit. Like every organization there may be some wrong doing. But to say it was responsible for our current situation or the Great Depression is quite a stretch. There were imbalances in the economy that were brewing for many years prior to 1929. Books have been written on this, and I cannot even begin right now. To say the existence of the Fed caused either of these situations is oversimplifying a lot.

If there's nothing wrong about audits why has the Fed fought U.S. government audits throughout its entire existence?
